From Bilbao we headed along the coast to San Sebastian which is a real gem of a town to visit. It seems to tick a lot of boxes in that it has a cheap Aire which is within walking / cycling / bus of the beach and town centre. This Aire is one of the continental parking types so frowned upon by most British motorhomers as you are packed in only feet from your neighbours on either side!
To me this is completely acceptable as you are in a beautiful city with so much to see and do so the van is only really for sleeping in, and as you are time limited on your length of stay, I don’t see the problem.
It was not the best of weather when we visited in June 2015 so you do not see many people on the beach in the following pictures. The beach, the old town and the tapas were the highlights for me and I hope to return in late 2017.
